As such, many of my own listing clients decided to hold off on new releases until April, hoping for better weather and also more exposure with the Easter 2022 holiday as well as many northern Door County businesses re-opening for "the season" in the later part of April.  In another 4 weeks, most of … (4 comments)

Case in point is our new listing at 11979 Bay Lane in Ellison Bay--which received 18 Offers (all at or well over asking price).    So to save you some time, we've assembled homes that are AVAILABLE as of this writing and MOVE-IN READY for … (1 comments)
